5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read For Policy-Makers, March 23, 2012
This review is from: Roosters of the Apocalypse: How the Junk Science of Global Warming Nearly Bankrupted the Western World (Paperback)
As many people have observed, the modern environmentalist movement has more in common with a pagan religious movement than anything having to do with science and reason. In this marvelous, easy-to-digest book Rael Jean Isaac takes that analogy to its logical conclusion: today's enviro-theocrats are the latest in a long-history of doomsday prophets who have attempted to use the specter of supposedly imminent disaster to inflate their importance and/or line their pockets. Unfortunately, the gullible, technically ignorant mainstream media and a host of equally misinformed policy-makers have provided the echo-chamber that these "roosters of the apocalypse" so desperately need in order to scare the begeezus out of the general population, and Isaac takes them all to task.

Isaac neatly exposes and skewers the spurious foundations of global warming alarmism: the fact that "consensus" only exists with regards to points that don't actually matter; the IPCC's shameful history of dissimulation; the appalling ignorance of media-types who purport to speak with authority and a host of other topics. She is one of the few voices to point out that - contrary to popular perception - the United States and the Obama administration have already taken a number of economically-damaging steps to reduce the use of cheap, abundant fossil fuels in the name of eco-purity. All of the information and arguments are clearly and logically presented and Ms. Isaac's style makes it a fun read to boot. This is a book that every policy-maker should read before they cast another vote for the President's next "green energy" boondoggle. It's full of truths that Al Gore would find terribly inconvenient, if only he had the guts and integrity to read it.
